    Seems the temps have been rising and it's almost time to take down my igloo, But i have a lot of benching and comparisons left to do.

    I am going to try some real world tests with video cards and motherboards, so stay tuned and I look forward to comments. I will also be comparing temps from air, watercooling to phase and see where we can get the best bang for the buck.

    I also just got a braand new phase, I asked a well known builder to put together a unit that was high quality parts but bare bonz, I want to understand all about i and figure how it works then build the case and monitoring equiptment. And this is what i received

    I just got it yesterday so it should be fun trying something new and very sweet!

    So let the fun begin.... :toast:

    here a pic before it was shipped to me...

    LoL
    I have always loved this since i OC's my first celerons. But I also build systems so i have needs for a lot of what i buy and i do programming so i need to stay current wit hall types of hardware/software and systems.

    Plus i have been lucky to be a real hard worker and got hooked up with a company that is doing real well now, So i have been able to afford and indulge my passion, which is computer systems. Plus i am lucky enough to have a 10year old son that loves thsi stuff too, so we do it togehter, plsu a wife that allows me to do it as long as we are saving.

    Don't get me wrong, i have worked 16 hour days since the new year on my current project plus building systems for clients and doing the ocasional on site business repairs and some extra coding to boot. So it took a lot of hard work to get here and i am enjoying the fruits of my labors! :rockout:

    Hi, it usually costs between 600-800, it can be higher or lower depending on your build list :toast:

    Not too shabby on the $$$....Does the phase builder do 1366 head units? I really need a head unit for my VapoChill ...Or maybe ..would I be able to order one of these? And if so how long is the build take?

    Yo DOM, i look forward to when we can compare notes. Yea i am still working like a madman, but being a consultant you always have to mina all the cash/hours you can while a project is running. So yea, i work every day, sat and sundays too, but the good thing is I work out of my house most of the time. last night i went ot bed at 3am... we released soem code last week so now we are wrapping up all the deliverables, building in monitoring systems, support stuff and fixing bugs. It will be a while before we are jsut in the support/maint phase, so this gig will be going for a long time, that makes me happy and makes it easier to pull the trigger on good hardware.

    so i really haven't even turned on my systems except my work station and building my new workstation, but my bench has been silent, so i look forward to some time to just let loose and bench!

    Hi, this unit is tuned to do -45c to 55c on a loaded down i7, but I will find out very soon...
    and that was my range so i am thrilled... To me the most importent thing will be the sustained load of the unit, I want it to be constant :roll:

    So what brand of hte hyper memory chips do you have, I am very interested in how they perform, if you can please keep me posted and so i u, I have some kingstons and perfect storms.


    From what i see , there are a lot of 775 to 1366 head change stuff and people that will do mods, but i would think there is some kins of mounting kits for a unit like the VapoChill since it's a widely used unit wilkl pretty good support! so how does yours do on the 775's?


    With my 10year old helping i have been trying to stay away from LN2 and Dice for now, I know that within a year I will try that because that is the only way to get some benching numbers, but I still need to get better at tuning systems, especially ram.

    yeah well do that thing only ones i got are E8500/X3350 so idk how mines going to be with a i7 its tuned for it so i shouldnt worry much, but i dont get it ppl say if you have it tuned for i7 it wont run that good on a 775 :confused:

    cuz he did a 200w load and it was just lil more colder :ohwell:

    but i got my kneaded rubber erasers already 2 boxes :p
